'Tis the season of gift giving, and I man do I have a super fantastic gift for one of you lucky ducks! No, it's not a pony. It's something that requires nothing of you but to leave a comment (with your email).

 

 This beautiful gift comes from Oughton Limited, purveyors of luxury bags that are as durable as they are elegant. Like all good business ideas, creator, Daphne Markcrow, developed the Oughton Limited bag line out of a specific need. She was shipping horses from her farm to nearby trainers and realized she needed something large enough to keep everything organized yet not as big as a show trunk-and it needed to look good while doing that.




What she came up with is a beautiful collection of Equestrian inspired luggage, bags and wallets featuring her signature wax wear canvas, equine inspired hardware, and top-grain leather detailing.The combination being the perfect mix of sporty elegance. The Equestrian style is a classic one that transcends trend and becomes an instant 'piece' for your bag collection.



For this give away, Oughton let me choose my favorite bag from the collection. I chose the versatile and casual, Course Tote ($165.00 value). I like the year 'round style of this bag and it's understated elegance. I'd use this as a chic carry on. It gives instant 'bam' to jeans and a T. It's also a great bag that will fit a lap top as well as a change of clothes for an overnight.


"The Course
Tote is crafted of cotton canvas [treated for stain resistance] and trimmed with lightly pebbled orange leather and cotton webbing surcingle [made exclusively for us]".   The little bags do not come with this giveaway but can be purchased here. The give-away begins today, Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 and will end on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 at noon. The winner will be announced and notified within the next few days.


*Disclaimer: This bag will be shipped to you from Oughton. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery before you start complaining that you didn't get your free gift with out even so much as a purchase. That is all. Cheers and I love you. And I totally mean that.

Lovely! I hope it has been sprayed with
Eau de Cheval because then it would really have a worm hole to the ranch!
